Removal of apoptotic cells by phagocytes plays an important role in many biological processes, including embryological development and tissue remodelling. In addition, it has become apparent that one of the key mechanisms for the successful resolution of inflammation is the orchestrated clearance of apoptotic inflammatory cells by phagocytes (e.g., macrophages and dendritic cells) and other cells known to have phagocytic capacity (e.g., hepatocytes, endothelial cells, epithelial cells, etc… CONTINUE READING
